Family Fun ~
My sister and her three boys came yesterday for a stop and go on their way to Hilton Head for a short beach vacation. My younger sister and two kids (the only girl in the photo and the youngest boy) came over to hang out as well and it was FUN to have them all together and getting along great!
Here are all the cousins together!
I've learned in the last few years that if I want a good picture of my boys I have to give them the opportunity to do a crazy photo. So, I start off by saying let's get a couple of good photos to send to family and then we'll take some crazy/whacky photos. Holland usually still finds something crazy to do ~ he is the comedian of the family and I love how he is looking up to his older brother in this one ~ totally Holland.
The craziness begins. We didn't get the youngest one (Andrew) to do his funny face when we were taking pictures but he had an adorable one he did every time we stopped taking photos.
My middle son finally has hair! Since he was about 6 he has wanted to shave his head. We lived in England at the time and I think he really liked David Beckhams look and since then he has always had very little hair. Well, he decided to let it grow out and boy is it strange to see him with so much hair! I think it has something to do with a girl but he says not.
Still painting ROSES ~
I am teaching two classes next week that are totally booked so I've been playing around with the different kinds of roses to paint. I'm still totally hooked on the new style rose I just learned how to paint at convention and know that my students are going to LOVE it as well.
I think this tray would look pretty with a piece of glass laying over the roses so it could be used.
Have a great weekend. I have two painting classes tomorrow and will share those pictures with you sometime this weekend.
